Senior Charlie Rosenberger collects his Shuler for best supporting performance in the Starr’s Mill Theatre Department’s production of “Cinderella.” Senior Emily Steele and Rosenberger also won a Shuler for best costume design. This is the second year in a row that the Starr’s Mill Theatre Department brought home at least one Shuler.

Last Thursday, the Starr’s Mill Theatre Department won two Shuler Awards at the 16th annual Shuler Awards.

Seniors Charlie Rosenberger and Emily Steele won best costume design in this spring’s musical production of “Cinderella.” Rosenberger also won the award for best supporting performance. 

“When we won the award, I was in shock, but I was very happy and proud of us,” Steele said. “We put in so many hours of work that it felt really rewarding.”

To make their costumes different, Rosenberger and Steele made sure not to look at any other productions for inspiration, using only their own ideas. 

“We wanted to keep the costumes very timeless,” Rosenberger said. 

Steele and Rosenberger designed the costumes for the ball in “Cinderella” with a vision of the Capital people from the Hunger Games with expensive outfits and colorful hair.

“We hoped it would feel like our audience was dropped into a magical land,” Steele said.

The Shuler Awards were created to promote high school musical theater programs across the state of Georgia. These awards are named after singer and actor Shuler Hansley. The Arts Bridge Foundation hosts the annual show at the Cobb Energy Center in Atlanta.

This is the second year in a row that Starr’s Mill has won a Shuler. Last year, Katie Williams and Sophie Biel won best choreography for the school’s production of “Anastasia.”
